It’s Hallowe’en. And, unusually, I have a pumpkin to carve, courtesy of Kate.
It’s strange how Hallowe’en is a much bigger thing in the States than it is here. Maybe it is because of the curmudgeonly nature of the English psyche (any trick or treaters that come near me will get a clip round the ear and get told to bugger off), or perhaps it is more to do with Guy Fawkes Night coming so soon after, with its much more interesting fireworks – bright lights, big noise, toasty warm bonfires and plenty of food.
Must check out when the Central School is having its fireworks display.
